We're Having A...

     Well, pretty much all of my creative juice has been going into wrapping up the sewing of Halloween costumes lately so I don't have any super fun or creative way to say this, but I'm so excited to tell you that baby fox is another little girl!!!

     I mentioned last week on Instagram that our first ultrasound around 21 weeks hadn't been conclusive in finding out the sex, but with our second try, we could all tell right away! She was so well behaved and gave us all the angles we were hoping for, and seeing her sweet little profile and her tiny toes again was really tender. 
     Her measurements put me in my 23rd week, due at the end of February (though with my record of late babies I'm still counting on mid-march.lol), and everything about her is just perfect and healthy as can be! 

     The kids were all pretty mind-blown about the whole thing, I think because knowing it's a baby girl versus just 'the baby' makes it all feel more real:) And for everyone who's asked if John was disappointed, he didn't say anything to that effect, but just started talking excitedly along with all the girls.haha Five girls. Six kids! It's still kinda surreal to think about:)

     Thank you all for being so much a part of this exciting time for our little family! :) So many of you have been through so so much with me, supporting me with your words and your prayers and your incredible friendship, and it's felt every single day. We all experience beauty and pain and heartache and warmth daily, but as we try to focus on the good in the world, it takes really selfless people to care for me and my family as you do.

     This little lady is so whole-heartedly loved and anticipated, and seeing the kids' happiness grow all the time is such a blessing. My heart is extra full today:) 
Hope you have an amazing Halloween!

love you guys,

  12. I just had to share that I am the oldest of six - five girls and one boy! Also, born in the same order as your cute six kiddos. It is a pretty perfect way to do according to me. 😉 I just had my fourth in August and so far am following the same trend. So funny to see the coincidence! Congratulations!

  17. Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. http://babydeal.ie/
